B cells , also known as B lymphocytes , are a type of white blood cell of the lymphocyte subtype. B cells, unlike the other two classes of lymphocytes, T cells and natural killer cells , express B cell receptors BCRs on their cell membrane.
B cells develop from hematopoietic stem cells HSCs that originate from bone marrow. B cells undergo two types of selection while developing in the bone marrow to ensure proper development, both involving B cell receptors BCR on the surface of the cell.
To complete development, immature B cells migrate from the bone marrow into the spleen as transitional B cells , passing through two transitional stages: T1 and T2. B cell activation occurs in the secondary lymphoid organs SLOs , such as the spleen and lymph nodes. This model denotes that before antigen stimulation, receptors diffuse through the membrane coming into contact with Lck and CD45 in equal frequency, rendering a net equilibrium of phosphorylation and non-phosphorylation.
It is only when the cell comes in contact with an antigen presenting cell that the larger CD45 is displaced due to the close distance between the two membranes. This allows for net phosphorylation of the BCR and the initiation of the signal transduction pathway [ citation needed ]. B cell activation is enhanced through the activity of CD21 , a surface receptor in complex with surface proteins CD19 and CD81 all three are collectively known as the B cell coreceptor complex.
Antigens that activate B cells with the help of T-cell are known as T cell-dependent TD antigens and include foreign proteins. Once a BCR binds a TD antigen, the antigen is taken up into the B cell through receptor-mediated endocytosis , degraded , and presented to T cells as peptide pieces in complex with MHC-II molecules on the cell membrane.
Once activated, B cells participate in a two-step differentiation process that yields both short-lived plasmablasts for immediate protection and long-lived plasma cells and memory B cells for persistent protection. As with TD antigens, B cells activated by TI antigens need additional signals to complete activation, but instead of receiving them from T cells, they are provided either by recognition and binding of a common microbial constituent to toll-like receptors TLRs or by extensive crosslinking of BCRs to repeated epitopes on a bacterial cell.
Memory B cell activation begins with the detection and binding of their target antigen, which is shared by their parent B cell. Autoimmune disease can result from abnormal B cell recognition of self-antigens followed by the production of autoantibodies.
A study that investigated the methylome of B cells along their differentiation cycle, using whole-genome bisulfite sequencing WGBS , showed that there is a hypomethylation from the earliest stages to the most differentiated stages. The largest methylation difference is between the stages of germinal center B cells and memory B cells. Furthermore, this study showed that there is a similarity between B cell tumors and long-lived B cells in their DNA methylation signatures.

Describe the overall function of B-lymphocytes and their activation by T-dependent antigens in terms of the following:. B-lymphocytes B-cells are responsible for the production of antibody molecules during adaptive immunity. Antibodies are critical in removing extracellular microorganisms and toxins. B-lymphocytes refer to lymphocytes that are produced in the bone marrow and require bone marrow stromal cells and their cytokines for maturation. It is estimated that the human body has the ability to recognize 10 7 or more different epitopes and make up to 10 9 different antibodies, each with a unique specificity. In order to recognize this immense number of different epitopes, the body produces 10 7 or more distinct clones of B-lymphocytes, each with a unique B-cell receptor or BCR. In this variety of B-cell receptors there is bound to be at least one that has an epitope-binding site able to fit, at least to some degree, any antigen the immune system eventually encounters.
Eran Diamant, Zohar Keren, Doron Melamed; CD19 regulates positive selection and maturation in B lymphopoiesis: lack of CD19 imposes developmental arrest of immature B cells and consequential stimulation of receptor editing. Blood ; 8 : — Ligand-independent signals that are produced by the B-cell antigen receptor BCR confer an important positive selection checkpoint for immature B cells. Generation of inappropriate signals imposes developmental arrest of immature B cells, though the fate of these cells has not been investigated. Studies have shown that the lack of CD19 results in inappropriate signaling. In immunoglobulin transgenic mice, this inappropriate signaling impairs positive selection and stimulates receptor editing. Here, we studied the extent and significance of receptor editing in CDregulated positive selection of normal, nontransgenic B lymphopoiesis, using our bone marrow culture system.
Gabriel J. Izquierdo, Carlos A. B lymphocytes are the effectors of humoral immunity, providing defense against pathogens through different functions including antibody production. It is here that their antigen receptors surface immunoglobulin are assembled. In this paper, we describe B lymphocyte functions in autoimmunity and autoimmune diseases with a special focus on their abnormalities in systemic lupus erythematosus.
Reviewed: November 25th Published: February 26th Normal and Malignant B-Cell. Their roles are not limited only to the production of antigen-specific antibodies after antigen binding with high affinity via their membrane Ig but also to antigen presentation. The current chapter presents a brief overview on Igs and phases of B-cell ontogeny and B-lymphoid lineage markers.
B cells are activated when their B cell receptor BCR binds to either soluble or membrane bound antigen. This activates the BCR to form microclusters and trigger downstream signalling cascades. The microcluster eventually undergoes a contraction phase and forms an immunological synapse, this allows for a stable interaction between B and T cells to provide bidirectional activation signals. Once activated B cells may undergo class switch recombination.
T-cell maturation, activation and differentiation T-cell maturation: The migration of progenitor T-cells from the early sites of hematopoiesis to the thymus takes place at about day 11 of gestation in mice and in 8 th or 9 th week of gestation in humans. T-cell maturation involves the re-arrangement of the germ-line TCR genes and the expression of various membrane markers. In thymus, the developing T cells are termed as thymocytes.
CD1d-restricted invariant natural killer T iNKT cells play central roles in the activation and regulation of innate and adaptive immunity. Cytokine-mediated and CD1d-dependent interactions between iNKT cells and myeloid and lymphoid cells enable iNKT cells to contribute to the activation of multiple cell types, with important impacts on host immunity to infection and tumors and on the prevention of autoimmunity. Here, we review the mechanisms by which iNKT cells contribute to B cell maturation, antibody and cytokine production, and antigen presentation. Cognate interactions with B cells contribute to the rapid production of antibodies directed against conserved non-protein antigens resulting in rapid but short-lived innate humoral immunity.
- Ну и что с. Спустя несколько секунд Соши преобразовала на экране, казалось бы, произвольно набранные буквы. Теперь они выстроились в восемь рядов по восемь в каждом.
Вы отлично знаете это. Это Цифровая крепость.
- Я не Северная Дакота. Нет никакой Северной Дакоты. Забудьте о ней! - Он отключил телефон и запихнул за ремень. Больше ему никто не помешает. В двенадцати тысячах миль от этого места Токуген Нуматака в полной растерянности застыл у окна своего кабинета.
Вопреки отчаянным попыткам подавить охвативший ее страх Сьюзан явственно ощущала, что это чувство завладевает ею безраздельно. Она металась между дверцами кабинок и рукомойниками. Потеряв ориентацию, двигалась, вытянув перед собой руки и пытаясь восстановить в памяти очертания комнаты. Споткнулась о мусорный бачок и едва не наткнулась на кафельную стенку.
Она проследила за его взглядом, прикованным к синеватой сыпи. - Ужас, правда. Беккер кивнул. - Ты же сказала, что не колешься.
Я не видела смысла впутывать моего спутника, да и самой впутываться в дела, связанные с полицией. Беккер рассеянно кивнул, стараясь осмыслить этот жестокий поворот судьбы. Она отдала это чертово кольцо.
